All students in the Stevenson Program start at the Beginning Level and move through the Basic Blue Level to the Intermediate. Teachers, however, can start the program at either the Beginning or Basic Blue levels. Depending on age and learning style, students will move through the first level at different rates and use different amounts of material.

See “Using the Stevenson Program in Grades K-5” (pdf files) or “Using the Stevenson Program in Grades 6-12” (pdf files) for specific suggestions about selecting materials for specific students.

Product Details

This book contains directives for teaching the reading of numerous word groups that cover dozens of different vowel patterns. It also teaches many other language skills such as answering questions in complete sentences, identifying parts of speech, capitalization and punctuation. Special sections help teachers who did not use the first level of the program follow through with students who did. The manual contains 52 lessons. Each lesson begins with a brief summary, a list of the materials needed to teach the lesson and hints on timing. All lessons end with cross-references to the reading book and workbook pages needed for reinforcement as well as an Additional Suggestions section if you feel extra work is needed. There is also an optional Commentary section that can add valuable perspective. The manual has several appendices which provide additional teaching resources.
